Call for Posters

PLDI’16 will be hosting a student poster session on Wednesday, June 15, 2016 during the PLDI Reception from 6-9pm PST at the conference venue (Fess Parker Doubletree). All students attending PLDI are strongly encouraged to participate, and our goal is to allow as many students as possible to present themselves and their work to the community.

Suitable topics are descriptions of work in progress, thesis projects, honors projects, and relevant research being or to be published elsewhere. Poster topics should target areas of interest to the PLDI community as described in the call for research papers.

This is not a competition, but an opportunity for students to get feedback and suggestions from world-class researchers and also to market themselves as a future employee, PhD student, postdoc, faculty member, etc.

Students presenting a paper at PLDI, LCTES, or ISMM are ineligible to participate in the poster session. Students who are authors on a paper being presented at PLDI are eligible to participate, but the poster topic should be distinct from that of the PLDI paper.

Students participating in the Student Research Competition (SRC) will contribute posters to this session as part of the SRC and should not apply to present an additional poster.
